In today’s world, it is not good enough for an entrepreneur to produce a product that is functional, durable and with a competitive price. Governments and NGO’s and increasingly the general public are also associating quality with being environmentally friendly.

Nowadays, it is common to hear of green buildings which minimize consumption of electricity, biodegradable packaging which does not release toxic when disposed off and products which are made from recycled materials.

To further promote green products and services, the Malaysian Green Technology Corporation ( GreenTech Malaysia ) has introduced the MyHijau Mark for products, services and systems. This is a recognition scheme for green or environmentally friendly products and services.

The benefits of the MyHijau Mark to companies are many folds: companies purchasing green products, equipment and systems may be eligible for tax allowance; green service providers may be eligible for tax exemption status for up to five years; green technology companies will gain free publicity through the MyHijau Directory, published by GreenTech Malaysia; and on top of that, companies will gain the image of a truly worthy one with quality products among the increasingly discerning consumers. It will also help companies to penetrate international markets which are now ever more demanding on standards on environment issues.

To register for MyHijau Mark, the products and services must fulfil all the following criteria:

  • Minimize damage to the environment, or reduce greenhouse gas emissions;
  • Promote health and/or improvement of the environment;
  • Conserve the use of energy, water and/or other forms of natural resources, or promote the use of renewable energy or recyclable materials

Registration for MyHijau Mark is only open to Malaysian registered companies. For more information and application for MyHijau Mark, please log on to: www.myhijau.my or contact:
